Maura Higgins' Dancing On Ice performance

Viewers were not happy with the camera work during Maura Higgins’ latest Dancing On Ice performance.

An illness last week plunged Maura Higgins’ place on the reality show into doubt but she made it to the ice on Sunday.

The former Love Island contestant donned a werewolf outfit and impressed the judges with her skate to Shakira’s She Wolf.

Those watching from home, however, were not thrilled with the camera angles for Maura’s performance in particular.

Viewers complained of cutaways and shots being “all over the place” for Longford’s Maura and her partner, Alexander Demetriou.

Maura wasn’t the only one to fall victim to a wayward camera as presenter Holly Willoughby almost lost her dress when a camera unexpectedly whizzed past her feet.

“This camera just whizzed past my feet and almost ripped my dress off,” Holly laughed, revealing how close she had come to being left naked on live television.

“Honestly I was nearly like… boom… ‘hey guys’. Oh my goodness me.”

Dodgy cameras aside, Sunday night’s show saw former Republic of Ireland international Kevin Kilbane sent home following a skate-off.

Kevin wasn’t too disappointed to leave Dancing On Ice, however, having found love with partner Brianne Delcourt during his time on the show.

He said: “I’m delighted anyway, regardless of how it’s gone.”
